General Enquiry for Instructor Positions
I’m as Spanish diving instructor looking for a new opportunity and challenge in my diving career. I’m a PADI Tec Deep Instructor, PADI normoxic Trimix Diver and next month I’m finishing my IANTD Trimix Diver Course. I’m real interested in technical diving, so after that, by the end of December, I will move to a place where I can have the opportunity to find a job as much related as possible with it.
After some research I think that Thailand can be the place where I can increase my education and experience in technical diving, even if I’m working most of my time in recreational diving while I’m reaching the appropriate level. With this objective in mind, your dive centre in Phuket seems to be the perfect dive shop, due to your high level of education and professionalism of the team, the variety of courses offered and your flawless business development.
I’m a really hard-working team player, able to teach in Spanish and English with a lot of experience giving a wide variety of courses and specialties, and of course guiding dives with certified divers. I also have a lot of experience in equipment maintenance (Apeks and Aqualung official technician) and boat handling. I attach my complete CV for further information.
Please let me know if there is a position where my skills could fit in, I’m totally willing to obtain all required certifications, to do an internship or anything you consider for becoming a valuable member of your company. If this is not possible, any advice coming from you would also be really appreciated, considering your vast experience, because I’m moving to Thailand anyway.
